3 if: - If you need this parameter to select some records only - if it does not appear in the header of the report - If dates are stored as number, not type date Then, use 32 for the day. It will do the job (the day 32 will always be after the last day of the month and before the first day of the following month) Otherwise, you can write an RPG program to calculate the date for you. It would be very simple in RPGIV: just substract 1 day of the 1rst day of the following month.

This particular CL submits a job with the prior month and year as the parms (let's say &YEAR (4) and &MONTH (2)). Then, the CL does a STRQMQRY with the year, month, and day of the last day of that month. Does anyone have a sample of the easiest way to figure out the last day of a particular month (i.e. if run today, the year and month would be 1999 09, and the CL would need to pass 19990930 to the query.)? I know the method for passing parms with STRQMQRY, I am just wondering if anyone has some code laying around that gives you the last day of the month (accounting for leap years also).
